Everton vs Fulham Live Stream and Highlights
Everton vs Fulham Preview:
Date: April 27, 2013; Time: 3:00 PM BST;
Venue: Goodison Park — Liverpool.
The Toffees will try to keep their Champions League hopes alive. David Moyes’ team still has a small chance to achieve a top-four finish, while Martin Jol’s men have poor away record and won just three games on the road so far this season.
Everton could lose the fight for a Champions League place. Fulham have dropped points after a poor run of games, but they still can easily finish at the top half of the table.
Everton goes 6th in the Premier League with 56 points from 34 matches, having 14 wins, 14 draws and 6 losses so far this season. The Toffees are 5 points behind 5th-placed Spurs and have played a game more. They have a great season and still have small hopes to finish in the top 4. Probably, it is much more than was expected to finish 5 points ahead of local rivals Liverpool. Their present form has seen 2 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss from last five games. Last weekend Everton were defeated 1-0 away at Sunderland and will try to get back to the winning way. Last five home matches the Toffees have finished with 1 loss and 4 wins and have kept a clean sheet in their last 3.
Fulham stands 11th in the EPL table with 40 points from 34 matches, winning 10, drawing 10 and losing 14 so far this season. The Cottagers are 9 points clear out of the relegation fight. They have had a poor run with 1 wins, 1 draw and 3 defeats from their last five matches. Last five away games the Cottagers have finished with 1 win, 1 loss and 3 draws. Fulham were defeated 0-1 at home by Arsenal last weekend. They still have great chances to finish at the top 10.
Everton probably will play without Victor Anichebe due to a hamstring injury and Darron Gibson cause of hip problem. Phil Jagielka still sidelined with ankle injury and will be replaced by Jonny Heitinga. Tony Hibbert could recover from a calf injury after being long-term absentee.
Fulham will be without midfielder Steve Sidwell due to a four-match bun for a red card that he received in the game against Arsenal. So, he will miss the rest of the season. Also, Martin Jol can’t count on Damien Duff, Askhan Dejagah and Mahamadou Diarra. Emmanuel Frimpong could replace Sidwell in the central midfield zone.
